Were you are to solve your issue? I am having that issue with my MAX32625PICO when using the max32625pico_max32630hsp.bin firmware. But If I used another firmware in the PICO (such as max32625pico_daplink.bin) and I get "Transfer time out" error in the FAIL.txt file.

Hi Danny,

This error is usually shown when the firmware on the board is out of date or if for some reason the computer cannot reset the MCU itself. In the first case you will need to update your board's firmware by following the instructions here: https://os.mbed.com/teams/MaximIntegrated/wiki/MAXREFDES100HDK#firmware-images

In the second case, after you flash a program onto your board, unplug and re-plug your board back into your computer and the board should be successfully reset (or if the board has a reset button, press that instead).

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Hey Jenny Does not work the Pico just flashes white a bit ..Then Blue shuts down and disappears from comp

After you flash the program to the board, the expected behavior is that the board resets itself by disappearing from the computer and re-appearing. When you plug the board into the computer is your program running? I would recommend trying to debug your program with a serial terminal as well, you can follow the tutorial for this here: https://os.mbed.com/docs/v5.9/tutorials/debugging-using-printf-statements.html

Hi again Danny, are you using the PICO board (MAX32625PICO or MAX32630FTHR? If you are using the PICO board please try updating the firmware for your board by following the instructions here: https://os.mbed.com/teams/MaximIntegrated/wiki/MAX32625PICO-Firmware-Updates

Here are some details to consider:

  • The MAX32625PICO board cannot provide power to the MAX32630FTHR, so make sure both boards have a powered USB cable attached.
  • You typically need to press the reset button on the MAX32630FTHR board after updating the firmware to make it run.
  • If the MAX32625PICO board appears as a drive named MAINTENANCE, it is expecting a firmware update. It will not have the UART and it will not program an external target. If it is in this mode, drag-n-drop a valid MAX32625PICO firmware image, or power cycle the pico board to go back to the existing image. If it does not re-appear as a drive named DAPLINK, update it with the appropriate file from this page: MAX32625PICO-Firmware-Updates

Still get the error
